​Burnley boss Dyche backs Vydra to kick on after Southampton winner

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is backing his attacker Matej Vydra to show his worth in the coming weeks.

Vydra came off the bench and got the winning goal for Burnley against Southampton in the Premier League last weekend.

He could be involved again if Chris Wood does not get fit in time.

And Dyche has confidence in Vydra, along with his other strikers.

"The thing with strikers... they go in and out of those spells when they haven't scored and they get one and then they get three," said the Burnley boss.

"There is a thing in strikers where often that happens, and it would be lovely if it does of course.

"If he plays on Saturday it would be lovely if he pops up again.

"But I think part of a striker's role is that focus to keep doing the right things all the time, and if you keep doing that, don't be surprised when it goes well for you."
